You know the tune from class but the version we are using actually has lyrics which we cut out! Here is out mix for those who want to practice.
Also know as ‘Has Anybody Seen My Gal’ the tune was most popular in the 1920s. The origins are uncertain but it is believed to have been written in 1915 making the tune over a hundred years old!
The song was first recorded by The California Ramblers in 1925 and has been covered by many of the greats and was used in the 1974 movie The Great Gatsby. The Firehouse Five were a Dixieland jazz band popular in the 1950s. They have covered many of the classics and their version offers a better recording quality.
To hear the original with the funny ‘Cat Voice’, have a listen below. Worth a listen but hopefully you’ll agree the silly voice would soon become annoying hence us deciding to edit it :)
